'I am not doing a film. This is my last picture' Yash ji used to say. Jab Tak Hain Jaan was actually a film which I chose over a film Adi had offered me. I said no (to Adi)! if Yashji is making a film, I’ll be a part of that.”
SRK recounts how Yash Chopra became emotional during the shoot of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, his last directorial. He says, “We were shooting in Ladakh and in really difficult conditions. He was the coolest of us all. I was shivering to death. I was doing a shot in Kashmir, but then he came and said ‘yaar teri picture khatam ho gayi’. I said ‘kya bol rahein ho aap?’ He said ‘last shot hain, bas. Ab toh kuch raha nahi. Picture khatam’.”
SRK adds, “And he (Yash Chopra) became very emotional. Then he kind of started crying. He said this could be our last shot. I said why last shot? So, he said no there are no more shots left of you. I said yeah, but we’ll make the next one. He said yeah… last hain yaar. Last shot hain.”
